Today I experienced something for the first time that I've been mentally preparing for since I got here: walking to class in the rain. I excitedly pulled out my green wellies and charcoal sweater, wore them cheerfully (probably more so than I should have been) through town and then boom. I was smacked with a desire for Autumn and everything that it entails. The girl that came here two short weeks agowith this preconceived notion that she could somehow entrap and carry with her the favorite and ever-familiar summer winds as she traveled the world was now almost skipping under the brim of her yellow umbrella. I undoubtedly cannot deny it anymore- scarves, black booties & flowy sweaters are my passion now. Along with everything pumpkin-flavored and plum-colored, that is. xo.
